Alexander Millar is one of the most popular and collectable artists today.
His paintings hang in galleries and private collections all over the world and he is continuing to gain critical acclaim for the works he produces.
David Lee art critic and editor of the Jackdaw magazine said:
“What is admirable about Alexander Millar’s paintings is that they are the product of reference and invention, as the best art should be, and they broadcast a real and touching sentiment. I recognize immediately their intimate truths.”
Millar’s childhood was spent growing up in the small mining community of Springside, situated between the two Scottish towns of Irvine and Kilmarnock.
He describes it all as a street dance, produced for him only and made what seemed ordinary and mundane quite fascinating. “I guess that is the whole premise of the work that I produce in that I still take delight in turning the “ordinary” into something “extraordinary”.
